In the August 11, 1996, Albuquerque Journal, Toby Smith had a sidebar that named many of the state’s closed drive-in theaters. “One drive-in, in Chama,” he wrote, “called itself Kelly’s, after the resident who owned it”.
Kelly’s Drive-In was opened by October 1961. Aerial photos from 1981 show a small drive-in just west of Rio Chamita on present-day US 64 near its intersection with State Highway 17. The screen, projection building and faint ramps were still visible in 2021.
It was reopened in June 2022.
